Chocolate: Food and Fashion

Dolci Nocciola Chocolate Hazelnut Sauce :: $12.00

Today I bring you foodgasm in jar. And it’s vegan! This is an informal introduction to Dolci Nocciola Chocolate Hazelnut Sauce from Bella Cucina. Think couture Nutella but even better. It is decadent and smooth Belgian chocolate with roasted hazelnuts ; rich and subtle notes of Espresso highlight this chocolate symphony. So far, I’ve used it on coconut milk ice cream, on biscuits, waffles, and licked it from a spoon. A little bit goes a long way. If you don’t watch it though, your jar will be empty in a week. I’ve personally paced my use and still have half left. You can also find Dolci at Dean and Deluca, Eataly in NY, or purchase online.

angelrox chocolate bamboo wrap :: $158.00

I meet designer Roxi Suger in 2002/3 when we were both starting out in the fashion world. She was a new designer and I was an co-editor and curator one of the first online e-zines. I had the pleasure of running into her after years at a show and see we are now on the same path of eco-friendliness and sustainability.

Wraps and the “I can wear it 10,000 ways” dress were heavy in the fashion market last summer. AngelRox makes this versatile ware sustainably focused by using bamboo. There are so many creative ways they have come up with to wear them from dresses to outfit accents and in a multitude of colors. Check out to see her full line.
